Do you lack energy, feel washed out and tired? You may be experiencing adrenal fatigue or adrenal exhaustion.
Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue:
- Feel worn out all the time even though you get enough sleep?
- Feel tired at night but can’t fall asleep?
- Feel bloated?
- Crave salty snacks?
- Feel stressed out, scatterbrained, can’t focus?
- Have little interest in sex?
- Gain weight easily?
If any of these symptoms describe you, you may be experiencing adrenal fatigue or adrenal insufficiency.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Also called “adrenal exhaustion” by health professionals like Dr. Christiane Northrup, adrenal fatigue occurs when the body over-produces the stress hormone cortisol on an ongoing basis, but does not produce enough DHEA to counterbalance the negative effects of cortisol. After about age 45, men and women alike produce too much cortisol and not enough DHEA.
Adrenal fatigue is especially prevalent in adults ages 45 and up, and can become a chronic condition that gets worse with age.
If you suspect you have adrenal fatigue, consider taking Dr. James Wilson’s Adrenal Fatigue Questionnaire from his book Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome. This will help you recognize the possible presence and degree of adrenal fatigue.
How to Fight Adrenal Fatigue
It takes more than a cup of coffee or energy drink to counteract the effects of adrenal fatigue. First, it’s important to see a physician to make sure your thyroid and iron levels are okay and that nothing else is going on that needs attention. Have your hormone levels checked, too. Often people with symptoms of adrenal exhaustion discover their DHEA levels are low.
